HOW. DARE. SHE!?

Embattled Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hit absolute rock bottom on Tuesday, comparing what’s taking place at America’s southern border to the Holocaust.

Again, the Holocaust.

Once again Democratic Socialist member of Congress Alexandra Ocasio Cortez has demonstrated she is either an imbecile or speaks without doing any research. Her latest idiotic rant accuses the Trump administration of operating concentration camps. According to the dim-witted Democrat:

The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. And if that doesn’t bother you, I don’t— I got nothing— I like, we can have, ok, whatever. I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that we should not— that ‘never again’ means something, and that the fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it. This week, children, immigrant children were moved to the same internment camps where the Japanese were held in the early, in the earlier 20th century. And this is, this is not even about a crisis for, this is not just about the immigrant communities being held in concentration camps being a crisis, this is a crisis for ourselves. This is a crisis on if America will remain America in its actual principles and values, or if we are losing to an authoritarian and fascist presidency. And so I think that that is, you know, I don’t use those words lightly, I don’t use those words to just throw bombs, I use that word because that is what an administration that creates concentration camps is. And a presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist. (video embedded below).

She doubled down on her idiocy today:

Obviously, AOC is trying to recover from her original foolishness. While not all concentration camps are death camps, she used the term “never again,” which was a direct reference to the Holocaust. The concentration camps used for Hitler’s final solution were death camps. And I am not saying that as a shrieking Republican but as a Jew with family members who suffered through the Holocaust.

What the asinine Alexandria was dripping stupidity about was Health and Human Services plan to use Fort Sill, an Army base in Oklahoma to hold growing numbers of immigrant children in its custody after running out of space at government shelters. Health and Human Services said in a statement that it has taken about 40,900 children into custody through April 30. That’s a 57% increase from last year, which is a rate on-pace to surpass the record figures in 2016 when 59,171 minors were taken into custody.

In its 150-year-history Fort Sill has operated continuously it is not being re-opened as some liberals have claimed. It was a POW camp during the Indian Wars (Geronimo was there), and home to the 1st Balloon Company. Post Field at Fort Sill is the oldest continually operating airfield in the U.S. Army. It is arguably the birthplace of US combat aviation, it was the home of The Army Ground Forces Air Training School, and still trains our military. A part of Fort Sill was indeed used as an internment camp. But it was also used to house unaccompanied minors in 2014 during the Obama administration. Per the Navy Times

Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan approved the request from HHS to house up to 5,000 unaccompanied children, and the request extends through Sept. 30. The temporary facilities could be opened and stay open through Sept. 30.

This marks the second time in five years that Fort Sill has been called on in this type of effort. Fort Sill was used to temporarily house nearly 2,000 unaccompanied immigrant children in 2014 for about two months because of a migration surge at that time.

Navy Times also explains that the Kids will be housed in “hard-sided structures, with semi-permanent, soft-sided structures used for support operations.” They won’t be staying in tents as the Japanese-Americans were forced to live in during WWII.

Social Media Giant Permanently Banishes Pro-Life News Outlet

So much for free speech.

Our nation appears destined to fall into the clutches of a technological oligarchy, headed by the likes of Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, and there is very little that can be done about it. These two men, who run Twitter and Facebook, respectively, have been ruling their public forums with an iron fist, hiding behind the concept that their private status is a workaround for the First Amendment.  Their gargantuan reach and influence has made it possible for them to act with impunity, steering the narrative on any number of subjects, from Donald Trump to the wonder of maternity. The latest affront to free speech comes to us from Facebook, where a pro-life news organization has been completely banished. Facebook permanently banned LifeSiteNews, a popular pro-life news outlet, for publishing “false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm.” As justification for unpublishing LifeSiteNews, Facebook cited an article posted on April 10, 2021, titled “COVID vaccines can be deadly for some.” Facebook said they erase Facebook pages that publish “vaccine discouraging information on the platform.” The site’s staff was livid. “This all comes down to another case of Big Tech silencing free speech on their platform,” said LifeSiteNews Marketing Director Rebekah Roberts. “Facebook has been silencing any voice that goes against their beliefs and agenda,” Roberts said. “Our LifeSiteNews Facebook page has been removed simply because we have shared reports of doctors, nurses, expert researchers, and even the former Pfizer VP speaking out against the COVID shots.” This is just the latest in a long line of Orwellian moves by these social media mavens, and may in fact be just another harbinger of something far more sinister to come.

CDC Readies Cruises, Complete with Human Guinea Pigs

Fingers crossed!

As the world prepares for its grand reopening, there are a number of high value industries that are eagerly awaiting permission from medical authorities to resume operations. First and foremost, there are the service industries:  Places like restaurants, bars, music venues, and sports arenas whose entire livelihood depends on whether or not people are being allowed to gather in public.  While many of these venues are now beginning to ramp up their capacity, there are issues bringing some of these workers back into the fold thanks to the enhanced unemployment benefits provided by the federal government. And then there’s the tourism industry, whose regulatory structure is far more susceptible to interference by government agencies. Now, after over a year of stagnation, it appears as though at least one facet of this wide-ranging corporate amalgam will be given a chance to sail on. Cruise lines can soon begin trial voyages in U.S. waters with volunteer passengers helping test whether the ships can sail safely during a pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave ship operators final technical guidelines Wednesday for the trial runs. The CDC action is a step toward resuming cruises in U.S. waters, possibly by July, for the first time since March 2020. A spokeswoman for the cruise industry’s trade group said the group was reviewing the CDC instructions. So, how will this work? Each practice cruise — they’ll run two to seven days — must have enough passengers to meet at least 10% of the ship’s capacity. Volunteers must be 18 or older and either fully vaccinated or free of medical conditions that would put them at high risk for severe COVID-19. The ship operator must tell passengers that they are simulating untested safety measures “and that sailing during a pandemic is an inherently risky activity,” the…
